Hello AF´s,

for quite a while it was difficult to get a Mockingboard or a clone .....
we remember that several months ago a member of ebay sold a clone for the II+ / IIe in the simple version without speechchips but with the soundchips as a stereo version.....
this offer is back ..... i probably can´t give any referance to the board ... i don´t have one....
but if anybody bought that card out of the last lots, that the ebay-member sold in earlier lots - it might be interesting to get here some feedback to that card....
at least the card seems to be availiable again and is set to ebay at:
http://www.ebay.de/itm/180902323815?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
not very cheap but also not to expensive if you bear in mind that a reengineered board contains
2 VIA chips, 2 Soundchips and several other hardware and 2 amplifierchips for 2,5 Watt output per channel...
bearing in mind that good etched boards in minor series still have also a price the amount of 96 U.S. Dollars does not seem to be to expensive....

i would appreciate any kind of feedback here if somebody has experience with that board.....
due to the fact that the original board also had no firmware, it should work with all mockingboard-compatibel software....
so i´m cute to the replies

sincerely speedyG
